Harvest MethodHandpicked and carefully selected grapes.
WinemakingCava made with the best winemaking techniques and the utmost care. The destemmed grapes undergo a cold soak for several days in order to maximize the primary aromas. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks at a very low temperature between 12-14°C for several days. The coupage wine obtained undergoes a second fermentation in the bottle according to the méthode traditionnelle. They employ a strain of yeast that increases mannoprotein content in the cava in order to achieve a velvety and creamy mouth feel. The cava ages in the silence of their cellar on its lees for 30-42 months.
